We arrived about 4:30. We were met by the friendly manager and a Massai who helped us with our bags and went to our very spacious room/tent. The view is beautiful and I can't believe how much space we have in our tent. It is beautifully decorated with teak hard wood floors and mosaic. We are definitely coming back with...

A steep 4 wheel drive climb takes you to this wonderful place. The camp blends in with the surrounding greenery and is right in the middle of Mikumi National park (Tanzania) which by itself is a veritable Garden of Eden. Stayed one night here. Ms Sabrina is a perfect hostess and really looked after our needs. The staff are also...

The camp/lodge is within Mikumi NP, and the view from the bar or balcony over the plains below is spectacular. The balcony is also a good place to spot a few mostly nocturnal mammals (bush babies in particular, but also ganet, civet and honey badgers). Staff are friendly and food served is good and tasty. Tented rooms are clean +...

Wonderful tented camp, great food, they even showed us honey badgers from the safety of the raised dining area and bush babies came to stare at us as we ate! We moved here from another camp that was just infested with giant millipedes, and were very glad we did. Service was great, staff amazing, and of course the park is...

It was the most incredible hotel in our life !!!!! Only tent without windows, fresh air, animals around and unexpected conditions. Everybody was so friendly, we were welcomed as very closed friends. Manager is great and stuff knows what to do . You don't need to ask about anything. It was the best adventure for us in our life. I...

Glamping style. I was so surprised when we turned up. The welcome at the start was both informative and funny. All the staff were amazing and helpful. Food was amazing. Simple and home cooked. You can sit by the pool or enjoy the bar after your meal. Electricity is limited but not a limitation. You don't need it out there...

This was a pleasant spot in a remote location. A welcome treat after what we had before that. A very well managed lodge with great views of the Mikumi Plains below and nice evening entertainment with its nocturnal visitors. Tents are well appointed, new bathrooms, good beds and clean. Food is good and camp fires round off the evenings nicely....

What a fab find at the end of the day! A bumpy road up to the place but a warm welcome and views to die for. Recommend tent 2, the tent is gorgeous and the view from the veranda amazing. The place has limited electricity which comes on at 6.30-22.30 at night, you are given solar patterns and the water...
